The Abu Hamour Experience By Ola Diab July 1, 2010 Abu Hamour Abu Hamour Camp Doha Qatar Abu Hamour Doha Qatar “Balochi” is what the wall says which is the ethnicity of the people that live within The Abu Hamour Camp Within the camp, there are only two mosques for the 10,000 Balochies who are mostly Muslims. Men gather outside the mosque after prayers to chat. Young boys make the peace sign to the camera Young boys enjoy sitting on the sides of the streets comparing bicycles and cellphones. Somes homes put cloth into the holes on the tip of the walls as a ventilation system A woman stands outside the door of her home Women in the camp rarely walk down the street and if they do, they do not walk long distances. Women are always conservatively dressed. A young Pakistani girl who leaves among the Balochi people Young Arab boys who live within the Balochi people. Young boy walking down the street in the Balochi camp. This bus remains on top of a rubble of rocks in the camp for years which young boys and girls have a hobby to write on its exterior A Pakistani-Balochi man walking down the street in the camp. Some homes have cloths covering their doors because they either cannot afford to buy one, or because many leave their doors open and use the cloths to cover what goes on in the house Some kids enjoy going on the roofs of their homes for fun The girl is climbing over the locked door to get into her house Young boys and girls take their toys and play on the streets When it rains, water floods the streets which kids enjoy playing in The streets in The Abu Hamour Camp are of sand without a drainage system so when it rains, the streets become swampt with water The streets in The Abu Hamour Camp are of sand without a drainage system so when it rains, the streets become swampt with water A toddler sitting on cement blocks outside her home As the young boy walks down the street, he begins kicking a box found on the street A young Pakistani-Balochi girl waves to the camera.

I’ve been to this place several times,,, and despite the poor infrastructure, I found it one of the most interesting places for me to visit in Qatar.
looking forward for more exciting topics
Is there any way to get into contact with anyone in Abu Hamour or doing work in Abu Hamour for a school project? Thanks
People in Abu Hamour are very friendly so if you go to the camp somebody will definitely help. I have a few contacts who will definitely help, but I’m currently overseas and don’t have them so if you could email me at firstname.lastname@example.org then I’ll remember to get you the contacts.
yes off course ….i live in abu hamour…and i will really be thankful of you….
